 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Watch this fabulous video of an inquisitive octopus as it comes out of the water to go for a 'walk'.

Although it's not unusual for octopus to come out of the water – they're great escape artists in the aquarium after all – footage of this sort of quality that actually shows them walking about is much less common.

The octopus in question appears to carry a crab, which it leaves at the feet of the person holding the camera.

Amazing video!
